THE THEATER OF MOVEMENT IN PRIMARY SCHOOL EDUCATION

University of Silesia in Katowice (POLAND)
This paper presents a new authorship method of work with children – “the theater of movement”. The goal of the theatre of movement based on kinetic intersemiotic transfer is self-expression of its participants as the presentation of their way of perception and manifestation of their body, emotions, and mind.

Visualization, where the body becomes a tool for expressing one’s own thoughts, experiences becomes a medium of creation allowing a considerable progress in the development of children’s divergence, their contacts with other people, expansiveness and space appropriation. The subjects experienced their own kinesthetic and corporal capabilities and in this way they developed their affective and intellectual spheres. And what is of utmost importance they learned how to act and create jointly what in the educational work cannot be overrated as originality and non-conformism of the individuals is a value in itself yet when it becomes part of joined activities brings benefits for the group, opens inhibited or withdrawn individuals who lack confidence as far as their own capabilities are concerned.

Empirical Research – General Approach:
The present study focuses on the connection between the classes devoted to kinesthetic visualization and the motoric behavior presented by a child displaying the level of its creativity and non-conformism. The text presents a quasi-experiment in which an especially designed the theater of movement segment is the manipulative factor.
The aim of the research was to diagnose the progress of the participants’ divergence concerning visualization (executed based on the analysis of one of the scale category of the motoric behavior profile). The following question is the basic research problem: if and in what manner a multi-leveled spatial visualization impacts the motoric behavior profile among children aged 7 - 8 with respect to divergence features?
The following features of the kinesthetic level were studied: algorithmics– divergence, passiveness – activeness, isolation – contact, subordination – domination.
Holistic observation of all the subjects allowed making quantitive conclusions concerning the behavior changes of the tested group.
The research results will be presented in the individualizing manner as generalization of the creativity development dynamics seems in this very case not a very appropriate move, particularly if corporality is defined from the perspective of phenomenology and an individual human being creating visualizations is in the core of our interest.
